Ever fancied having a rave round at your place, but were afraid of the neighbors? Or wished you could host your own massive dance jam, without inviting the police in at 3am? Well now you can, if you’re prepared to do things a little differently.
The folk at Silent Disco King provide everything you need for a totally quiet rave up, for just about any number of attendees up to 60,000 people. The idea is you hire your requirement of 2,3 or 4 channel wireless headphones, and select whether you want to supply the DJ and sounds or hire those as well.
During the event everyone dons the headphones and does their thing, since they can select which of the DJs in the room to listen to. It sounds and looks manic, especially when the whole room starts singing along to the tracks and you can actually hear them. Weird.
Take a look at the video below to get an idea of how crazy the idea is, and yet how totally logical. As well as renting out the whole rig, really keen partiers can buy their own set, with prices ranging from £115 for a single headphone set (lonely gig) up to ridiculous. But for an example a 50 headphone system goes for around £1299.
